The Unseen Art of Hadi Salehi – Conversations in 3 parts
There have been recent discoveries of photographers work, which during the artists lifetimes, went somewhat unnoticed.
Like Vivian Maier, whose vast body of work was uncovered via an estate sale, or the personal work of Saul Leiter, who, although still with us, had found boxes of his old transparencies in recent years, causing a huge current interest in his personal fine art work.
We hope that we have found the work of Hadi Salehi, and can help present it to the world, before time marches on.
A former instructor at Art Center in Pasadena, California, he has rarely showed his work, but a few early fans and collectors have now convinced him it is time. Of course the collectors hope to add to their walls before the prices skyrocket, which they will.
The interviews have been broken up into 3 parts: The History, The Work , and yes, The Gear.
At the end of the Gear video, this long time instructor and fine artist, give some sage advice to the new photographers.
Wise words from a gentle, talented, soul.
